Why use Double Double Face Cream?
All facial creams, lotions and moisturisers are emulsions, which are are oil and water mixtures – like mayonnaise! Usually, most of the product is water, and plumped up with fillers, which means that there is very little active ingredient in the mix and the customer is getting very little bang for their buck. With Double Double Face Cream we have squeezed in as much active ingredient as possible to make our cream richly moisturising and super anti-ageing. In fact, Double Double Face Cream is made up of 41% super anti-ageing ingredients. Not only does it contain 14 special oils with high levels of potent antioxidants, vitamins and essential fatty acids, but we have also added Hyaluronic Acid, Coenzyme Q10, Aloe Vera and Glycerin for added moisturising and hydrating effects.
There are no nuts, no gluten, no nasty chemicals and no useless fillers.
The oils in Double Double Face Cream are the same as those found in our potent anti-oxidant Double Double Facial Balm. Many people find facial balms too oily for day-to-day use; hence, Double Double Face Cream was created! Like all our Double Double range, it unique oil blend delivers antioxidants, vitamins and essential fatty acids to the skin. They enhance skin cell regeneration, which improves scar healing, and reduce pigmentation and wrinkles. They also increase retention of water within the skin and so improve skin tone, flexibility and texture. You can read about these fabulous oils here. Double Double Face Cream has the added benefit of humectants, which are substances which bond with water molecules in the environment to increase the water content of the skin, helping keep the skin hydrated, soft and supple. We only use natural humectants.
Hyaluronic Acid is a natural molecule present throughout the body. It helps hydration in your skin, connective tissue and eyeballs, and helps the cushioning in your joints. It is the most powerful humectant we know of and can absorb 600-1000 times its own weight in water. Once past your 30s, your body starts to produce lesser amounts and this is where adding it ourselves helps. We use two types of Hyaluronic acid of differing molecular weights, so that it penetrates and acts in both the superficial and deeper skin layers. Hyaluronic acid plumps the skin, helping it to look firmer and tighter, as well as to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Glycerin is a present in all the cells of our body and so is easily absorbed by the skin. Its benefits to the skin continue long after you use the product. It binds water tightly helping the skin to remain moisturised and hydrated, leading to plumper-looking skin and less wrinkles.
Coenzyme Q10 (Ubiquinone)
CoQ10 is a natural antioxidant produced by the body. It helps to stimulate circulation and boosts energy in cells. From about 30 years, however, CoQ10 production starts to slow down as the body ages. Topical application of CoQ10 has been found to protect and repair collagen and elastin in the skin and to fight free radicals that attack skin cells. Hence, it is useful for smoothing wrinkles and delaying the signs of ageing.
Aloe Vera penetrates quickly and deeply into the skin. It contains phytosterols and polysaccharides, which hydrate and moisturise, binds water within the skin, and helps to reduce inflammation.
